My Take on The Persuaders
If I re-did it I would Make it a meaner and nastier show where two rich men are persuaded by a judge leading a group of men who use the two t right their wrongs they couldn't.
The American on the show would be a rap mogul based on Sean Combs and Jay-Z. Someone who has gotten far enough away from the streets and his background that he can leave it behind. His being in Europe would be because of a new obsession with racing and especially Formula One.
The Britain would be based on Ewan McGregor and Richard Branson: the gentleman adventurer who has made his fortune and now spends his time trying to press him self on to new goals. The kind of guy who has ridden a motorcycle around the world and got to space even as a tourist.
I would have the two of them meet in a similar fashion as the original series, only instead of a race through the streets of the Med I would have them race on an F-1 track trying out new cars for their team.
